    Good stuff. We're playing Southampton next week so hopefully they'll be demoralised and we'll have a chance of going top of the league. :woo:
    New manager midweek, apparently. And it's not as though we don't have a thing for beating you very often.

    And Jason Puncheon is completely off-form, so he'll definitely score against his former club.

    And our club is mental and the turn of events this summer could only have happened to us. Mental. Depressingly so.

    I don't remember the last time a former player scored against us.

    What happened? I've been away for much of the summer so didn't see.

    Are you going to the match? Unfortunately I'm going to be away again so won't be able to make it.

    I just turned on Sky Sports 1 to see Brentford score a great goal against Wednesday and go 1-0 up at half-time.

    In 5 meetings against 'MK Dons':

    MK Dons 0-3 Southampton (League One)
    Southampton 3-1 MK Dons (JPT)
    MK Dons 0-1 Southampton (JPT)
    Southampton 3-1 MK Dons (League One)

    (And a 2006 4-3 win in the FA Cup)

    Our record against you isn't bad at all, but that's bound to change.

    We start the season as favourites. We lose 'pace' on the wings (Papa Waigo and Michail Antonio). Our billionaire owner dies. We slowly steady the ship and win 4-0 away to Bristol Rovers. Alan Pardew is sacked. Rumours range from him 'approaching' players wives, to training ground scuffles, to being annoyed with players being bought on his behalf (by our possible-mentalcase egomaniac chairman). Awful start to the season, compounded by off-field turmoil. So much for 'we will walk this league'.

    Are you going to the match? Unfortunately I'm going to be away again so won't be able to make it.
    Possibly, I haven't yet decided. I think I have a ticket (from the first scheduled game), so probably.

    That does sound quite bad actually. :sadnod:

    Yep. I saw the whole of the second half and they should've got at least one more.

    Was it your fans singing there's only one Alan Pardew or was it ours? I wasn't at the game so I don't know.

    Wooooooo nice win by Reading yesterday, 3-0 at home against Crystal Palace. We needed that after losing our best player Gylfi Sigurdsson to the Bundesliga.

    Ian Harte looks to be a great signing and as much as the fans will miss Sigurdsson, we actually look a much more solid squad without him. His money allowed us to sort out our defence which needed addressing if we're to challenge for promotion this year.

    COME ON URZ!

    Haven't got internet at the moment, but watching us beat Sheffield Wednesday last weekend was so amazing. :coma: Happy with a 0-0 away at Bristol Rovers as well.

    we'll sort ourselves out sooner or later. Less annoyed about the loss to Rochdale now, considering the red hot form they're in.

    Notts were so unlucky on Saturday, by far the better team. Completely destroyed Charlton all game at their own place, without a doubt the most undeserved victory i've ever seen. It's looking good, finish a bit better and i'm sure we'll be fine!
